The Federal Police for the Protection of the Constitution has received information that the banned neo-Nazi Union of Nationalist Students is trying to organize new extremist student groups, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency was told today.

The Union of German Students Association said that the police organization was planning to survey the activities of the banned student organization and possible successor youth organizations in West Germany.

The group was banned during the past year at seven institutions of higher learning on charges of having a subversive program and of engaging in anti-Semitic and anti-democratic activities. Its periodical, “Student Im Volk, ” was recently succeeded by a new publication,, “Deutsch Studenten Anzeiger” which is published in Munich. Peter Dehoust, former editor of “Student Im Volk, ” has guaranteed a circulation of 10, 000 for the new publication. The banned students group had a membership of 600 plus an additional 400 supporters in various university organizations.
